    Happy birthday and congrats on the Blaser. It's nice to have a wife that buys you guns instead of neckties, isn't it...

    Very nice! And yes you are now compelled to book a buffalo hunt at the minimum. However you'd be a perfect clod if you didn't take that wonderful woman with you!!

    Aha!
    That's the plan, she went with me last year for elephant, even though she is not very keen on hunting... I guess close to a perfect woman, and beautiful by the way!!!
    I guess I must have been good in a previous life to have such a good karma...
